Ski area Špičák Zelezná Ruda

The most important ski area in the Bohemian Forest is Špičák. The lift pass "Ski Špičák" offers you access to approx. 8 km of piste at an altitude of up to 1,202 m. From gentle practice slopes for beginners to intermediate pistes for the more advanced and demanding black descents for those looking for a challenge, there is something for everyone here. Children can enjoy their first attempts at skiing with skiing lessons on the suitable gentle slopes in the Pinguinland area. The "K2 Snowpark" awaits snowboarder and freestylers and offers varied and perfectly prepared obstacles of all difficulty levels.

If that’s not enough you should try out the pistes at nearby Pancíř (1,213 m), Belveder (900 m) or Hojsova Stráž (900 m). Approx. 10 km away on the German side you will find the Großer Arber ski area which offers a total of 12 km of piste at an altitude of 1,456 m.
